Blue Skies conquer Three Peaks Ghana

Blue Skies Ghana participated in the 3 peaks challenge on 9th and 10th September, 2016, organised by Kosmos Energy Ghana. The challenge brought together seven corporate bodies; Tullow oil, Kosmos Energy, Atuabo Freeport, China Habour, Pensile Enchile Letsa and Ankamah Consult, Dun & Bradstreet and Blue Skies. The objective for this event was to climb the highest and the longest mountains in Ghana within 24 hours and also to raise money to build a clinic for the people of Shiarri, a local settlement on Mountain Djebobo. The participants climbed mountain Afadjao and Aduado for the first night and proceeded to climb the third mountain, Djebobo in the following morning.

The three mountains are located in middle and Northern volta respectively. Mountain Afadjato, Mountain Djebobo, and Mountain Aduado all in the Volta Region of Ghana. The first two mountains were hiked in the evening/night between 5pm and 12am. The last peak was hiked between 7am and 9am. Three awards were at stake for the best dressed team, the strongest team and the funniest dressed team.

Blue Skies was represented by eight staff, namely Perpetual Ofasi, Wisdom Tukpih, Mawuli Dogbo, Sampson Kwawukumey, George Ahiagba, Richard Akornortey, Grace Mortey and Diana Azogla. The Blue Skies team seemed too strong for the competition as it took them just about three hours instead of the normal seven hours to ascend and descend the two mountains Afadjato and Aduado respectively to the amazement of the other participants.

In the end Blue Skies was adjudged the best dressed team and Tullow Oil won the award for the funniest dressed team. The strongest team however was awarded to the drivers, a decision which is being disputed as they had no contender in the participating teams – and it was obvious that the strongest team was really Blue Skies! Despite the controversy, the event was really adventurous and fun. Well done to the Blue Skies Team for proving their prowess when it comes to fitness and sports.
